Nelli Palomäki. Breathing the Same Air


With her unique and consistent style Finnish Nelli Palomäki has established herself as one of the most promising young photographers of the North. Her black and white portraits are reminiscent of the photography aesthetics of an earlier era, but also seem unusually present at the same time. Nelli Palomäki confronts contemporary photography’s focus on the photographer by focusing on the person portrayed instead and recreates the magic of the portraits of earlier times. She has a unique sympathetic insight, and her portraits are pervaded by a sincere interest in the people she portrays, which also becomes clear to the viewer.
